Basia Bulat Announces Sophomore Album, Heart of My Own

Two years ago Basia Bulat released her first album Oh, My Darling to much acclaim, including a Polaris Prize nomination in 2008. Eager fans have since been awaiting its follow-up. Good news today then that the wait will soon be over. Bulat’s sophomore record will be released on January 26th via Secret City Records- label home of Miracle Fortress, Plants and Animals and Patrick Watson. The record called Heart of My Own comes after over a year of touring that took the singer songwriter across Europe, Australia, Canada and the United States several times over. Since then Bulat reunited with Oh, My Darling producer Howard Bilerman in Montreal’s Hotel2Tango Studio earlier this year to record her latest work.

According to her press release nearly all the songs on Heart of My Own were written while on the road: traveling between cities, crossing the Canadian prairies, searching for a place to stop in the Nevada desert, trailing through the Smoky Mountains, standing in the bright dusk of a summer night in the Yukon.

Tracklisting Heart of My Own:

1. “Go On”
2. “Run”
3. “Sugar and Spice”
4. “Gold Rush”
5. “Heart of My Own”
6. “Sparrow”
7. “If Only You”
8. “I’m Forgetting Everyone”
9. “The Shore”
10. “Once More, For the Dollhouse”
11. “Walk You Down”
12. “If It Rains”

Its likely the talented musician will be revisiting many of these very places when she begins the trek to promote the new compendium of songs. She even has a few dates lined up in the coming weeks. Lucky fans might just get to hear a preview of the new record. No doubt many more dates will be announced soon.

Basia, Basia, Basia, not even your own hometown? Nor mine, come to think of it.

Still, it's good news all round on the new album.
